My Series Finale…Don’t Worry, There’s A Spin-Off 18 comments

Dear September, 

You were a fantastic birthday month for me! 

1. I hosted my first blog challenge. 
2. I participated in Rx Fitness Lady‘s 7 day challenge and Blogelina‘s Commentathon. 
3. I connected with some talented bloggers.
4. Received humbling accolades.
5. Had a great time, but boy am I tired. A good tired.


What I learned from the SSEDB Challenge:

  • Don’t judge a book by its cover. 
  • If you push yourself just a little bit, you will accomplish things you thought you could not do. 
  • If you write it, they will come.

What you can expect from Being A Wordsmith as a result of SSEDBC:

  • Because of the great response to the Resurgence writing prompt, it will become a monthly feature on BAW for one weekend. 
    • Look for it to begin October 18-20, 2013.
    • There will be a link-up to place your old posts so you can get new and renewed love.
  • I will be sharing more posts from other bloggers via Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and Sverve because of the outpouring of support shown to me.

To those who linked up for the September Sapphire Even Day Blog Challenge

…thank you!
I appreciate everyone who displayed my badges on their blog, stopped by during the challenge to give a shout-out, comment, or just say “What’s up?!” It takes a village to raise a blog.

One of the Louisiana seasonings below will be awarded to the following for their “above and beyond” participation in the SSEDB Challenge:

    KUDOS to YOU KIM for DOING YOURSELF WELL lady!!! You hosted a wonderful blog challenge that was excellently done! Sorry I didn't participate more, but you and Joi wore me out just reading all of your post, lol! You're right, you really don't know what you're capable of until you push yourself! Thanks for being a wonderful host my friend and thanks so much for taking time out during your BUSY month to link up! Have a wonderful rest of your week!

    Congratulations on being the only person I have “met” to host a month long writing/blogging challenge. I've enjoyed stopping by and reading some of your and some of the participants posts. I even “met” a few new bloggers through your challenge!

      That is great to hear that you connected with some new bloggers. I really wanted to be able to do that for not only me but other bloggers too. I appreciate your support, Andrea.

    Woo hoo! Thanks again for hosting this, Kimberly – I hope you do it again next year! It has been a wonderful experience and I learned to look at writing prompts differently ~ for the first time I felt free to interpret them in my own way! ;-D

    And yay – my first blogging prize too!

  • BeignetMamas

    Yayyy, my first blogging prize! Kimberly, thank you for hosting an awesome blog challenge! I would have to say that the Dramatization prompt was my favorite. I participated in the Rx Fitness Lady's challenge also, prompting me to create my first blog video – which went perfectly with this particular prompt. I like the fact that this was a challenge that called for us to post only on the even days of the month. This gave me time to not only get my post in, but to also take time to read the posts of other bloggers and comment. Thank you for this opportunity. I can't wait for the next go 'round!

    Kim, I loved participating in the challenge even though I wasn't able to be “all in”. It was the first challenge I have ever done so I learned a lot about myself, my writing, and the incredible generosity of other bloggers. Thanks so much!!
